    Hey everyone, I got some Turkens today. Any clue what this little guy’s coloration might be?

    The closest I can come up with is blue, although that is not a standard color for naked necks. It may be the result of different colors bred together. Sure is cute.

    Coloring is very similar to that of Black Australorp chicks.

    Do you think it will be pure black? Some of the other turkens I bought are completely black already, so I’m just curious.

    I don’t have experience with the breed so I can’t say if they will turn out to be black or not.

    Black is probably right, but this one looks a bit unusual to me, especially with the white wing feathers coming in. Hopefully it is pure for color but I think you will have to wait a bit to know on that count.
